However, a novel property of the Schistosoma japonicum glutathione transferase (Sj.GST26) involves its translocation from the external medium into a variety of different cell types. Here we explore the efficiency and mechanism of cell entry for this class of protein. Using flow cytometry and confocal microscopy, we have examined the internalisation of...[Show more]
